    The myterious earth drawings in South America, the Nazca lines should, IMO, be added to the game as a World Wonder. here is what I would propose should be its strengths:

    +8 Culture, +2 Great People (Artist or Prophet depending on programmers interpretation of the meaining of the lines.

    +1 Happy for all national cities containing state religion.

    Requires: Mathematics

    Obselete: Scientific Method

    What do you think?

    Well I think they're impressive enough to be consider a wonder of the world. As to their meaning I'm at rather a loss, but I'd guess religious, and so should give great prophets. I can't see much other reason for a civilization without flight to make artwork that can only be appreciated from the air.

    The Nazca Lines would be an awesome addition. I have always felt the Civilization series could do with a little more great wonders from Ancient America. Like the Serpent Mound for example.

    Though they are religious in origin, I believe, great engineer points might be better.
    We still don't know how things that only seem to have a airplane like use could have a use.

    That seems like a good suggestion, with a balanced game effect. Make a mod!
